. teachers protested here against cuts. they came onto the street at the government's announced the most severe round of budget savings so far. these latest austerity measures are widely seen as paving the way for a full-scale bailout. >> [spending -- speaking spanish] >> the minister of finance said he heard 2012 would be the last year the economy would shrink. another minister described it as a crisis budget designed to exit the crisis. this austerity budget aims to find savings of 40 billion joerres next year. each government department would how to make cuts of 90%. public-sector pay will be frozen for another year, and the retirement age is set to rise. >> just a few weeks ago, europe believed it had achieved a breakthrough. the european central bank said it would help come -- countries like spain by buying their bonds and reducing their borrowing costs. but there was a catch, spain would have to apply for a rescue and it would be strict conditions. but spain has resisted accepting conditions imposed from outside. part of the strategy behind today's budget was to adopt tough measure
denunciatory of the egyptian government, in my judgment. hillary put out a magnificent statement that follows the white house, repudiating the american embassy statement and making a statement calling the egyptian government to task. in libya, we were more conciliatory because the libyan president denounced the attack. but that is not adequate. if they can't control the cops and military, it is not a government. we should be denunciatory. i doubt there is a single country in the world left in civilization that would not have called back its ambassador. and certainly cut off, or put in terms that relates to the 2 billion that egypt receives from the united states, i am sure libya receives money. it was even greater because the american ambassador -- i am supportive of the arab spring. the times and elsewhere, i said to myself, they are not great people. but they are people that surely will turn out nice to us. it doesn't make any sense. >> the events of the last week, the embassy attacks, it will result in a further ongoing shift of jewish americans changing -- >> i think there is a little mor
a government representative rather than just direct my%. host: girls age 14 can get birth control at new york's schools. that's one story you probably have heard about. and in the "new york times this morning, there's this in their national section -- they are frustrated with mayor rahm emanuel. in florida, a democratic caller, good morning. caller: thanks for taking my call. good morning. the u.n. was created, basically, to undermine the united states. they tried at first with the league of nations. people in our government back then would not accept it. so then they came back with fdr with the united nations. he was progressive and he jumped right into it. if you just look, nobody in the un is our friend, hardly anybody. it was basically created to undermine the united states. host: what about japan, the united kingdom, france, spain, mexico? caller: i think mexico was complicity with the gunrunning thing and mexico is not really our friend at. japan, i don't know. but for the most part, everything out that the united states wants to do usually gets voted down by china and russia, who are a
debates later on. maybe you two can negotiate that. if you cut government benefits -- a secretly recorded video of mitt romney at a private fund- raiser was made public -- let's take a look. >> 47% of the people -- who will vote for the president a matter what. who believe the government has responsibility to care for them. who believe they are entitled to health care and food and housing, you name it. that is an entitlement. >> texas -- in 2010, 30.5% of texans filing era -- return paid no income tax. there is no data on how many texans get government assistance, but the census bureau found 24% get social security. 20 -- 14% did retirement income. 5% disability bed -- benefits and 14% from strands. mr. cruz, do you believe that government has a responsibility to care for them? >> of course not. i agree with mitt romney when he says his comments were poorly phrased. keefe said they were in elegantly stated. i think there is a difference. part of the philosophy of president obama is trying to get as many americans as possible dependent on government so that the democrats can stay in power
of what a definition of prevention, a goal to which both governments agree what a definition would be in practice. >> woodruff: i was reading today there was disagreement inside netanyahu's own government that the israeli foreign ministry concludes that the economic sanctions are hitting iran hard calling for another round of economic sanctions. is that significant? >> the economic sanctions are hitting iran the iranian economy is in trouble and the reason why we haven't seen results with regard to the iranian negotiating position is that the p 5 plus 1 has not put on the table anything in the way-- the united states and the other five powers that have been negotiating have not put on the table significant sanctions related-- basically no sanctions relate other than the airplane parts. >> here i disagree with paul very much. the economic sanctions have been a wonderful success and an abysmal failure. they've been a success at raising the economic cost to the iranians but if their real goal is to compel the iranians to change the nuclear policy they've had no visible impact. so that
that investigators had been invited into libya and would be provided protection. whether or not the libyan government could have delivered on that promise, we'll never know. what we do know is no fbi agents are in benghazi, according to our reporter. the crime scene remains unprotected and the official line seems to be everything is going fine with the libyan government and the fbi investigation. as we said, new details tonight. national security analyst fran townsend got some of them. so did cnn contributor bob baer. fran is the former white house homeland security advisor. she recently traveled to libya with her employer, mcandrew and forbes. bob is a former cia officer with deep experience in the middle east and arab world. also on the phone from tripoli, cnn's reporter. i'm a little surprised, fran, how they can say -- how they are painting what's happening on the ground in libya, especially based on what you're hearing from sources. >> look, anderson, we have not -- this is not the first international terrorism investigation regrettably going back to the east africa embassy bombings in the late
of the occupation of palestine and imposition of a safe government, displacement and genocide of millions of people around the globe, the truth behind these wars had been revealed based on justice. had saddam hussein not invaded iran and had the big power supported the rights of iranian people instead of siding with saddam if the tragic incidents of september 11th and the millions that were killed and homeless not happened and instead of killing and throwing the culprit into the sea without trial or without informing the world and the people of america an independent fact finding team had been formed to make the general public aware of the truth behind the incident and to prepare to bring him to justice their perpetrators, had extremism or terrorism not been used to secure political goals had the arms been turned into pens and military expenditures been used to promote well-being among nations had the drum of ethnic religious orational conflicts not been beaten and if differences had not been used for the purpose of advancing political agendas, had the right to c
government had intelligence prior to the attacks. >> shep: the leader of israel delivered a warning to the world only months remain to stop iran from developing a nuclear bomb. benjamin netanyahu spoke this afternoon. his comments come one day after iran's president addressed the same leaders at the u.n. and today the israeli prime minister warned that iran could enter the final stages of enriching uranium for a potential bomb by next summer. >> ladies and gentlemen the relevant question is noted when iran will get the bomb. relevant question at what stage can we no longer stop iran from getting the bomb? the red line must be drawn on iran's nuclear enrichment program because these enrichment facilities are the only nuclear installations that we can definitely see and credibly target. >> shep: israeli officials say they could soon strike iran's nuclear facilities with or without help from the united states. west has been using economic penalties to get them to abandon their program but so far, they haven't worked. >> there is an urgency that the israelis feel that the rest of the wo
-- no one thinks that israel is about drop a bomb on tehran. so the difference is this is a government with a record of supporting terror, and look, no one talks about this very much, but if they had a nuclear weapon, there would be two dangers. even if you believe they would never use it, that is, if you believe that they are sane and rational and understand that their country, their civilization, their whole history, would be destroyed if they ever dropped a bomb on someone because everybody would know it, and the retaliation would be incomprehensible, even if you believe that, two bad things will happen if they get a bomb. a lot of their neighbors will get bombs. and the more of these weapons you have hanging around, the more material you've got, the more vulnerable they are to being stolen or sold or simply transferred to terrorists and that brings me to the second point, which is that iran has all these extensive contacts with terrorist groups and even if the government didn't directly sanction it, it wouldn't be that much trouble to get a girl scout cookie's worth of fissile mate
of president obama, at least not publicly and that the u.s. and israeli governments do share a common goal. and i should say this too. the israeli prime minister, before embarking to the united states, made remarks briefly yesterday on the holiest day, right before the holiest day in the jewish calendar, yom kippur. he said this speaking about mahmoud ahmadinejad speaking at the united nations on that very same day. and i quote. on this day when we pray to be inscribed to the book of life a platform was given to a dictatorial regime who tries at every step to sentence us to death. it is position of the israeli prime minister if not stopped iran will developed enriched-uranium that could be used to make a bomb as early as spring of 2013. we expect him to elaborate on that in just the next few moments. megyn. megyn: david lee miller, thank you so. there was, as we've always heard from iran some bellicose language from its leader in the united nations. israel will have the chance to respond after mr. netanyahu speaks, we will be joined live right here for reaction and perspective by general j

government continues to prop up the dictator in damascus and supports terrorist groups abroad. time and again it has failed to take the up today to demonstrate that its nuclear program is peaceful. meeting the obligations to the united nations. that is why the united states will do what we must to prevent a run from obtaining a nuclear weapon. lou: the president was careful in his language. radical islam not mentioned once in his speech even though there is convincing evidence and a consensus that it was not an attack carried out by terrorists with links by al qaeda if not led by al qaeda. president obama did defend israel in the context of the 2-dissolution the palestine. president obama did not use the word allied to it specifically describe our relationship with the jewish state. the president refused one-on-one meetings with any of the world leaders. this is the same man who, as a candidate, pledged to, more than four years ago, the with our enemies without preconditions. he criticized the bush administration's unilateralism. >> the notion that i am not talking to countries is punishment

as compared to romney's own perscriptions that call for smaller less expensive government. for the president what he's going to try to do is say look, maybe things aren't so great but it is partly the fault of george w. bush and the republicans who were in office prior to the democrats taking control in 2009, so we need time to fix it, and by the way, the president will also say that he wants to increase taxes on people like mitt romney to help pay down some of that debt. >> reporter: we just put of that graphic there showing the $16 trillion of debt and there are so many digits it almost doesn't fit on the tv screen across the screen there, as you can see. but haven't americans in some way become number to astronomical numbers? how serious is this in. >> they have become number. is it the new normal this massive spilling of red ink but it raises three problems which i don't think the nation has got even to grips with yet. number one our economy is smaller than our debt. we look like europe, we know what happened there. number two we are spending $9 billion every week just paying interest on
are dependent on government very much -- >> reporter: but for romney when it rains it pours. his two-day under steady showers has a feel of a race against time. a new poll quinnipiac finds romney trailing the president by ten points in ohio, nine points in florida and 12 in pennsylvania. an abc "the washington post" poll may explain why. 54% said they had an unfavorable view of romney's comments on voters who don't pay taxes. romney told cnn he's not worried about the numbers. >> we're taking our message to the people of ohio and across the country. and polls go up and down. but frankly you're going to see the support that i need to become president on election day. >> reporter: but he's facing some strong economic headwinds in ohio where the governor, john casic, touted his state's recovery at a romney event. >> i hope you all know ohio's coming back from 48th in job creation to number four. number one in the midwest. >> reporter: joined by gulf legend and ohio native jack nicholas, romney said the president shouldn't get a mulligan or do-over. >> now there's over $16 trillion in debt. if he
